13 Bees B&B and beekeeping experiences
Situated on the banks of the river Vienne near the medieval town of Confolens, 13 Bees is the ideal place to stop on your cycling break or to base yourselves for a trip around the region. Guests enjoy a grand house party atmosphere in our recently renovated villa and can relax in the art-deco inspired salon as well as discover our 3-acre parkland garden.
Rebuilt and refurbished in 2016 by local artisans, our 4 spacious, double bedrooms offer peaceful and very comfortable accommodation. Each bedroom has a luxurious ensuite shower room and comes equipped with high quality linen and towels, with hairdryers and irons available for guests on request. We have a ‘No Smoking’ policy throughout the house.
Free Wifi is available throughout the house along with a lending library of books and DVDs to keep you entertained. On warm evenings we often host outdoor movie nights too. There are restaurants in Confolens but we‘re proud to offer freshly prepared, fixed-menu evening meals and can happily cater for most requirements. Just ask!
Throughout the spring and summer, we share our passion for bees and beekeeping with guests so you are welcome to join us for half-day taster sessions or longer training experiences in-between your riding days to make it a truly memorable stay. Check out the website for ideas…
